The Will to Resist: Soldiers Who Refuse to Fight in Iraq and Afghanistan

by Dahr Jamail - £14.99  Haymarket Books (2011)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781608460953 | ISBN 10: 1608460959

A prize-winning, unembedded journalist tells the hidden story of American soldiers turning against an unjust war.
Dahr Jamail's comprehensive study of today's military resisters sheds new light on the contours of dissent within the ranks of the world's most powerful military. Featuring a new introduction by the author.

"Dahr Jamail is one of very few journalists who have displayed the courage — physical, intellectual, and moral courage — to tell the truth about the invasion of Iraq. In this outstanding book, he describes the often secret resistance within the US military."
(John Pilger)
"Based on his experiences as an investigative reporter in Iraq and in his frequent conversations with Iraq and Afghanistan veterans, Jamail vividly portrays issues of conscience for military personnel during wartime. As a woman veteran, I thank him for exposing sexual assault and rape in the military, including the warning that 1 in 3 women are raped while in the military. Jamail’s work provides an indispensible help in our understanding of the costs of war to our own military as well as to countries that the United States invades and occupies."
(n Ann Wright, U.S. Army Reserves Colonel and U.S. diplomat who resigned in opposition to the Iraq war)
